The Cuttlefish that Could

Author Comments

Hi all, I hope you all enjoy this Flash film. It's about a Cuttlefish named Cuddly that wants to fly... seriously...

...it's a metaphor, find the meaning. (or find my comment in the reviews)

Enjoy the dramatic adventure...

EDIT - Unfortunately, the frame rate is down. The animation is supposed to run at 20 fps however in the browser it seems to be running at 16. This isn't good because the shots are meant to be in sync with the music. If you have Flash Player 7 installed then simply find cuttlecould.swf in your temporary internet files folder, copy it, paste it to another folder and open it. It will run beautifully. If someone can help me fix this problem with the browser I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

So great man!

that was one of tha most original things i've seen. gave me warm and fuzzies inside also. i really enjoyed all tha music samples though. from tha lil snipit from rollercoaster tycoon to tha team rocket theme from pokemon. even with it's cutesy lil theme, it somehow fits on newgrounds. great job, you've really made something good. i look forward to ur next flash if u plan on making one, which i pray that u are.

Where did you ever get this idea?

A very nice movie, I love to fly and this caught the spirit of that thrill! Hope to see much more of your work in the future. Catchy music too!

not my thing

Not my thing, but you did an awesome job.

Wow, Great Animation

The animation in this movie is 100x better then a lot of the crap you see on this site. You can tell that the author put a lot of work in to creating this. Its a refreshing break from the stick figures, thats for sure. If you're looking for T&A and/or gore, this movie isn't for you, but if you are looking for a funny little short with lots of charm, you can't do much better than this.
